European Equality Law Network

European network of legal experts in gender equality and non-discrimination

Thematic reports

The report EU gender equality law – update 2018 provides an overview of gender equality law at the EU level and is an update of earlier publications in 2008, 2010 and 2013. The publication aims at a broad – but not necessarily legal – public and explains the most important issues of the relevant Treaty provisions, legislation and case law of the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) in relation to gender equality.

It covers key concepts of EU gender equality law (distinction sex – gender, direct and indirect discrimination, positive action, sexual and other harassment based on sex, instruction to discriminate), as well as key areas such as equal pay, employment, statutory social security schemes, work-life balance and goods and services. Last but not least, it describes how EU gender equality law is and can be enforced at national level by courts and equality bodies and what sanctions, compensation and reparations are available.
